Disabled voters face Election Day hurdles

New York (CNNMoney) - On Nov. 6, there's a very real possibility that many Americans with disabilities will not be able to vote because their local polling places will be inaccessible.

Advocates for the disabled are worried that local governments aren't doing enough to prepare - as are some of the small businesses that outfit polling sites with ramps.

Tune to CNN for Thursday's vice presidential debate coverage starting at 7 p.m. ET on CNN TV, CNN.com and via CNN's apps for iPhone, iPad and Android. Web users can become video editors with a new clip-and-share feature that allows them to share favorite debate moments on Facebook and Twitter.

    The disabled have the opportunity to vote by absentee ballot, as do seniors, in various states, where early voting is not available.

    There really are too many excuses being used, about voting. Those who want to vote, have the ability to do that. It is not only their right, but it is also their own personal RESPONSIBILITY, and no one else!
